I have to say that after the rating of 95 by BA and 100 rating by RB, I was expecting something great. Well, let's just say that I was underwhelmed. It's an IPA that dark, so there's some bitterness to it, but not too much. Similar to to great divides IPA. The Tate's is good, but greatly dissapointing for me since I'm a Stout lover. Mouthfeel is bubbly and warm notes of hops, some dark chocolates and fruits.

Overall, it's okay. Nothing great. In the same vein, I'd choose something like great divide Titan IPA instead.

That being said, I recommend stouts. Dogfish Head World wide stout is awesome.

2.88/5  rDev -32.2%

650ml brown glass bottle with foiled over pressure cap served into a conical Guinness pint glass in me gaff in low altitude Los Angeles, California. Reviewed live. Expectations are average given the brewery.

Served refrigerator cold and allowed to warm slightly over the course of consumption. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: Pours a two finger khaki head of nice cream and thickness, and great retention for the high ABV. Colour is a solid black. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show. Appealing for the style.

Sm: Floral hops, some pine, must, dark malts, stale malts, and cream. A moderate strength aroma.

T: Unpleasantly aggressive hop bitterness atop clean malts, some floral character, and hints of citrus. Pleasant but unimpressive. There's little complexity or subtlety. It's too bold and aggressive. Overbearing.

Mf: Too sharp. Too thick. Coarse and dry on the climax, but nicely wet on the open.

Dr: Drinkable but unremarkable. A let-down from Firestone Walker, but then I've come to expect that from them.

Had as part of the "Reserve Flight" at the Bruery Provisions for its Firestone Walker tap takeover. Poured in a 2oz taster. Reviewed from notes.

A- Thin white head, with decent retention. Deep black color with very little light permeation.

S- My buddy James and I both commented on how "dank" this beer smelled. Like pungent marijuana, rye, chocolate and dark hops. Not a bad smell, just different. Earthy tones.

T- Some darker hops and a middling maltiness. Not blown away by the taste.

M- Medium bodied and wet feel.

O- I was hoping for more, but this was not a bad beer at all.
